Got this same vest a few weeks back for $30. Picked up some extra MOLLE pouches for the back and a belt. Turned it into my bugout vest. Keep in over the back seat of the Jeep (minus the pistol of course ) Very heavy duty vest, very adjustable too. Functional front storage holds enough “just in time accessible” that it doesn’t need the ability to add anything on the front (which you can’t anyway). The 30 bucks it was offered as back then was great. Current price isn’t bad either but the MSRP price, you ARE paying more for the brand then you would for a knock off.
Understanding that wearing one of these in public during an emergency or if SHTF will get you some looks so I picked up a decent 2 sizes larger rain jacket/wind breaker to put over it when it’s being worn. Just a thought.
